This is a color lithograph by the very important Israeli artist Yohanan Simon (1905-1976). The artist signed in pencil and numbered the work 6/25, dated 1972. The measurements are 16 1/2" by 22" image and the sheet 18" by 23 3/4". Unframed. The condition is generally good, though around the edges there are small losses from where the old triangular 1970s nails bit into the edges of the sheet (framing was not professional, there being no mat and no glass).
